ABNER MARES wants to avenge his defeat to Leo Santa Cruz. But first he must fight Andres Gutierrez on October 14. Santa Cruz fights Chris Avalos on the same show at the Stubhub Center in Carson, California.
“At first, I’m not going to lie, and most people know I felt upset. I felt a little irritated that I wasn’t getting that fight,” Mares said. “Because at first it was solid, but at the same time, things happen for a reason.
“But, it gives us that much time to get ready even more for the Leo Santa Cruz fight. But, again we’re not looking past Gutierrez, he’s a great fighter, he’s a hungry kid, I’m not that old and people make me sound old, but I’m not.
